Former Gator Chris Leak to become radio commentator

Former Florida QB Chris Leak, who played for the Gators from 2003-06 and led Florida to the 2006 BCS National Championship, has joined the gropu of expert hosts on SiriusXM’s 24/7 college sports channel.

Leak will host College Sports Coast-to-Coast multiple nights each week with Chris Childers. The show can be heard nationwide weeknights (7:00 – 10:00 pm ET) on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, channel 91. 

Leak will discuss storylines, teams and players throughout college football. He and Childers will interview current and past college players from around the nation.  

“SiriusXM College Sports Nation offers college sports fans outstanding coverage of their favorite conferences, schools and players all year long and I’m excited to be a part of it,” Leak said in a statement. “I still get amped up every spring, like I did when I was at UF, knowing a new college football season isn’t far off.  I look forward to talking directly with the fans about the BCS, this year’s national title contenders and the teams and players that you’re going to want to keep an eye on from now through the upcoming season.”

Leak was a four-year starter at Florida.  In the BCS title game in which the Gators defeated Ohio State 41-14, Leak was 25-of-36 for 213 yards and a touchdown, and was named the Offensive MVP.  He still holds Florida records for career passing yardage (11,213), completions (895) and attempts (1,458) and is second on the school’s all-time list for passing touchdowns (88).
